From Zegna to Saint Laurent, Fashion’s Rumor Mill Goes Into Overdrive

Another day, another fevered round of fashion speculation. Rumors are popping up with the blinding frequency of paillettes on an Elie Saab dress. I’ve never seen it this way. It’s corrosive. So let’s take them out of the shadows where they breed. The news on Monday that the men’s wear brands Brioni and Berluti were both parting ways with their designers, a stunning one-day shake-up of the talent pool, immediately gave rise to rumors that Alessandro Sartori, Berluti’s designer of five years, would be headed back to Ermenegildo Zegna, which is itself rumored...

Men's fashion goes XL for fall

Big flappy greatcoats, baggy trousers and voodoo charms... that is what fashionable men will be wearing next autumn and winter if the Paris catwalks are anything to go by. As men's fashion week wound up Sunday in the French capital, some clear trends were emerging for the months ahead, not least that black is back with a vengeance. From Dior to Givenchy and Yamamoto and Rynshu, it was everywhere in velvet, leather and wool, often combined with red check, the style touch of the season. But the trend that dwarves all others is for big and baggy. Small families could settle down for the...

Israeli fashion gets tactical

It was a pretty embarrassing moment for FMS Enterprises Migun Ltd., which develops and manufactures fabrics for the safety industry. A reporter from Israel's TV Channel 1 met with FMS Enterprises representatives to examine the knife-proof high-collar vests manufactured by the company for the civilian market and agreed to give it a try — that is, to be stabbed while wearing the vest to demonstrate its effectiveness. Unfortunately, the vest failed to deliver on its promise and the knife cut through the fabric. The hapless reporter was injured and needed medical treatment. Ana Dotan...

David Bowie — Japanese fashion icon

A lot of his fashion sense can be traced to Japan, says fashion historian Helene Thian. She has written about Bowie and Japanese fashion for the anthology, "Enchanting David Bowie: Space/Time/Body/Memory." Many of the costumes that Bowie wore throughout his career were created by Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto. “This includes the hairdo of the era, the buzz cut-looking red, fringed fantasy that David Bowie wore, which was actually Kansai Yamamoto’s creation and originally inspired by traditional Japanese dolls and Kabuki wigs,” says Thian. Bowie ...

An interview with UC Berkeley alumna,Fashion Features Director Connie Wang

Talking to Connie Wang, fashion features director at Refinery29, is surprisingly refreshing: She’s bubbly and quick-witted, not to mention thoughtful and overflowing with great advice. The UC Berkeley alumna talked to The Daily Californian about the many hats she has worn over the years at Refinery29, a website she first discovered while interning at Glam Media in Brisbane, CA. After graduating, she headed to the Big City and shortly after applied for an editor position. She’s been there ever since, moving from one editorship to another, shaping the content that is so popula...

Colours of 2016, but not as you’d expect

Serenity now, people, with some Rose Quartz mixed in. The experts at the Pantone Color Institute have chosen not one but two colours of the year — named thusly — in a complementary pairing that spans fashion, media, packaging, housewares and a desire for more tranquillity and calm in actual life. Or so they say — they being colour analysts, who span the globe in search of trends. Rose Quartz is a pale pink and Serenity is close but not quite what once was referred to as baby blue. In fact, Pantone believes the blend reflects a gender neutrality that has strengthened ...

Was 2015 the year fashion crashed?

Fashion is frequently said to be dying. It's an incendiary, inflammatory and always news-worthy point of view, offered at various points since the early 1970s, but ramping up in intensity in recent years. Fashion, we're told, is crashing; fashion is breaking or is broken; fashion needs a fix. Fashion's over. The perceived causes of the imminent demise of the fashion system – which has survived a century and a half since the invention of haute couture and the notion of seasonal change – are manifest, and often trivial. The rise of ready-to-wear was once cited, as was the imp...

Being called ‘bad boy of fashion’ is a compliment: Rohit Bal

When one thinks of beautiful handcrafted designs and unconventional silhouettes, Rohit Bal’s name immediately comes to mind. Even after being in the business of fashion for 25 years, the designer’s deep understanding of aesthetics comes through in his collections, which usually draw inspiration from history, fantasy and folklore. Known not only for his attention to detail, but also for his flamboyant and unabashed personality, Bal believes in breaking conventions. Here, he exclusively talks to us about styling for his celebrity friends, being the “bad boy of Indian fas...

U.S. Support of Gay Rights in Africa May Have Done More Harm Than Good

Suspicious neighbors and landlords pry into their private lives. Blackmailers hunt for victims on the social media sites they use to meet others of the same sex. Police officers routinely stop them to search for incriminating images and chats on their cellphones. Since an anti-gay law went into effect last year, many gay Nigerians say they have been subjected to new levels of harassment, even violence. They blame the law, the authorities and broad social intolerance for their troubles. But they also blame an unwavering supporter whose commitment to their cause has been unquestioned and...
